Caltech and City of Hope have signed a memorandum of understanding, formalizing a relationship that encourages researchers from the two institutions to collaborate and share resources in the interest of furthering both basic scientific research and translational projects—those with a medical application. The memorandum establishes the Arthur D. Riggs Distinguished Lectureship series, which will bring scientists from across the country to speak at Caltech and City of Hope on current projects in basic research as well as on efforts to predict, prevent, diagnose, treat, and cure such diseases as cancer, diabetes, and HIV.
